How have you set up elementary courses in your school? I am having trouble seeing how the grade books could be set up to make this work. Does anyone have any experience with this?
Kristi, I'm sorry that your question has gone unanswered for so long! I'm going to share it with the K-12 group whose users have considerable experience with elementary school gradebooks in general and multiple grading periods in particular.
I'll start with saying we don't use Canvas in our elementary, but had some thoughts and thought I would share. I also am not a teacher, so if my comments make absolutely no sense, that is why
To organize content:
One way you could do a self contained elementary course in canvas would be to make use of modules, by creating one for each subject. You could also make use of assignment groups to keep content in the right place.
To organize your gradebook:
You could create sections for each subject under your main course.
You could use standards, and just use the learning mastery gradebook to determine the actual grade you issue in your SIS/paper gradebook
